AllMusic Review by

This Australian export brings together 18 classic recordings from the peaks of Minnie's career. Decent transfers of the rare 78s make this a better than average listening experience and what the liner notes leave out in recording dates and other information, it gives back with a good bio and a good understanding of the material. With classics aboard like "Bumble Bee," "Memphis Minnie-Jitis Blues," and the title track, it's hard to fault this one as a first purchase to investigate one of the grandest ladies of the blues.
